This is the fifth entry from my fieldwork diary. The original date is 25.05.2010.


PHOWA - transference of consciousness at the time of death. The method can be applied at the moment of death to transfer one's consciousness through the top of the head directly into a Buddha-field of one's choice. By so doing, one bypasses some of the typical experiences that are said to occur after death.
This is the best and deepest practice in Buddhism.

*Phowa is one of the Six Yogas of Naropa. It is said to be the quickest, most direct way to be liberated from samsaric suffering.
